Sweet Caroline Sweet

By Tony Edwards

Directed by Jane Charman

Cast List

Percy Middleditch   Martin Fuller
Mrs Yates   Eileen Saunders
Caroline Sweet   Annie Walker
Mr Gillis   Terry Brown


Prompt   Doris Lemon


Percy Middleditch is, as they say, one of lifes losers. An insignificant man, with nothing going for him in the looks or personality stakes. So when an advertisement in the Lonely Hearts column brings the beautiful Caroline Sweet into his life, he is besotted. His shrewd and neighbourly landlady warns him not to raise his hopes too high - and is proved right when Caroline turns out to be rather different to what she first appeared. Percy is shattered, and his uncharacteristic reaction carries the full weight of his feelings.
